Loving these Fuerte avocados from the farmers' market this week. One huge attribute this variety has going for it is that it doesn't brown on the inside. I guess one could say Fuertes age gracefully. I just have to remember to feel them more often since they stay green when ripe. If you can find them, pick some up. They're such a refreshing change from the Haas. No offense, Haas. You know you're always welcome in my house.
